Synopsis: This dark comedy from Australia is the story of Muriel Heslop (Toni Collette), a young woman struggling to find acceptance amongst her peers, her family, and most importantly with herself. Muriel’s life changes when she moves to Sydney with her friend Rhonda (Rachel Griffiths) but a series of events and the eventual realization of her dream wedding leads her to realize that her desire to change may have taken her down the wrong path.
Purr Blur: When we first see Muriel’s home her little sister is walking down the hallway toward the kitchen to tell their mother that their father wants a cup of tea. A cat can be seen sitting in the hallway. Sadly the cat is not seen again in any scenes at Muriel’s house.
Final Mewsings: Apparently Muriel wasn’t the only one who successfully escaped from home.
